Loving the World – Bad Idea!

Or rephrased – Stop Loving the World – So says 1 John 2:15 – 17.

Love God – Great Idea!!

The passage talks about 3 things:

– The Lust of the Flesh – Sinful sensual pleasure.
– The Lust of the Eyes – Materialism.
– The Pride of Life – Being proud about your position in the world.

These are not of the Father and are passing away.(Believe it or not)

But, the person who does the Will of God and Loves the Father will live forever! (With Him)

Now that’s the kind of thing I want to pursue and make important in my life. How about you??

It’s so easy to become enamored by the 3 things mentioned above.

After all we live in a culture that is super-saturated with them.

To embrace those things is the norm in these United States.

To go against the grain – yes it’s harder, but good things are worth the pursuit!!

  1. Yea His Journey is way more exciting and interesting then anything the world has to offer. Its sad of sin has become “the cool and fun thing”. Following Jesus is way more radical and fun a pursuit and cause worth laying down lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. Easy to give up when looking onto Jesus. Jesus “the really cool thing”!
